Mind-Brain Lecture: Jason Stanley (Yale)

“Skills”

19 June 2014, 18:30-20:00

Venue: Bernstein Zentrum für Computational Neuroscience, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Philippstraße 13, Haus 6, 10115 Berlin

Abstract

In this talk, I propose a theory of the nature of skill, one that explains its connections to obviously important philosophical matters, and in particular to knowledge. This account vindicates the traditional place of skill as a properly central concern of philosophy.
